Running with the Generals

December 17, 2014

I’ve been a basketball junkie all my life. I shot around on a Little Tykes hoop in my basement until it wasn’t fun to beat my dad anymore — OK, it’s always fun to beat your dad in things. I traveled around Indiana with my friends playing on various teams; I played high school basketball. Read More

Column: Joining the Tiana Hanson book club

This is my plea to get Sheridan College’s Tiana Hanson some national recognition. If you don’t know who Hanson is, she’s the unassuming 6-foot-1 post player who has made a second home under the basket for the Lady Generals. If you haven’t had time to watch her play, make time. It’s worth it. She’s junior Read More

SHERIDAN — With 2:22 left in the game, Pablo Rivas skied for a rebound, his 12th of the night, thwarted off two Western Nebraska defenders, and took a karate-chop across the arm for a foul. He hugged the basketball and let out a yell, as if to say, “These are my rebounds. Stay away.” The Read More

Hanson scores 40 to lead Lady Generals to ninth win of season

SHERIDAN — It would have been a steep task for anyone to wipe the grin off of Tiana Hanson’s face after Saturday night’s game against Eastern Wyoming.

Column: Being punished for winning

The College Football Playoffs selection committee got together yesterday and released their latest rankings, its first since the end of the regular season.

Column: Losing on and off the court

How far off the court is a coach required to step in his responsibilities as the head of the program?

Building a dream: Mayer works toward post-high school career; but first another state title

November 11, 2014

BIG HORN — Maybe it’s the lack of superstars that call the state home, maybe it’s because it’s the least populated state in the United States. Whatever it is, Wyoming isn’t typically known to be a hotbed of athletic talent. Sure, Greybull native Brett Keisel and his beard are terrorizing NFL offenses with the Pittsburgh Read More
